Uterine blood flow--a determinant of fetal growth.
Despite physiological differences, particularly with regard to maternal metabolism and placentation, the occlusion model in the pregnant sheep is suitable for investigating questions about fetal and placental growth. Expand
Are we regionalized enough? Early-neonatal deaths in low-risk births by the size of delivery units in Hesse, Germany 1990-1999.
This analysis presents an urgent public policy issue of whether such elevated risk in smaller delivery units is acceptable or if further consolidation of birthing units should be considered to reduce early-neonatal mortality. Expand
Oxygen tension in follicular fluid falls with follicle maturation.
The increase in ovarian blood flow during follicular maturation is obviously not sufficient to bridge the growing diffusion distance between the capillary network surrounding the follicle and its center. Expand
Impact of fetal growth restriction on mortality and morbidity in a very preterm birth cohort.
A 25th percentile cutoff point was a means of identifying infants at higher risk of death and a continuous measure better described risks of BPD, and lower birthweights were associated with poor outcomes regardless of pregnancy complications. Expand
Morphometric Investigations of Breed‐Specific Features in Feline Skulls and Considerations on their Functional Implications
A total of 17 parameters was used to characterize the shape of the skull in a sample of 69 pure bred cats and confirmed three phenotypically different skull formations, i.e. the round‐shaped, the triangular and the cuneiform. Expand
Dynamic changes in organ blood flow and oxygen consumption during acute asphyxia in fetal sheep.
In fetal sheep near term during acute asphyxia the time course of changes in blood flow to central and peripheral organs is different; total oxygen consumption depends on arterial O2 content and peripheral blood flow; totalBlood flow to the brain does not change, but is redistributed towards the brain stem at the expense of the cerebrum and choroid plexus.

Variation in the ossification process of the anconeal and medial coronoid processes of the canine ulna.
This morphological and radiographic study investigates the ossification process of the anconeal and medial coronoid processes of the ulna in a sample of 142 dogs ranging in age from neonatal to 44 weeks to find both processes to be mature by the age of 16 weeks. Expand
Despite clinical similarities there are significant differences between acute limb trauma and complex regional pain syndrome I (CRPS I)
It is indicated that pain and vasomotor disturbances may be generated by different mechanisms acutely after trauma and in acute CRPS, and additional changes in the peripheral or central nervous system are required for CRPS. Expand
The blood pressure in arteries entering the placentae of guinea pigs, rats, rabbits, and sheep
It was concluded that in the studied animals with a hemochorial placenta the vascular resistance which limits the maternal placental flow lies in the arteries outside the Placenta, while in pregnant sheep with the epitheliochorial plicenta the main resistance lies inside thePlacenta. Expand
